JR awarded 2011 TED Prize

The TED prize, which awards $100,000 and one “wish”, has in recent years been given to Bill Clinton, Bono, James Nachtwey and Jamie Oliver among others, was given this week to French photographer / street artist JR. Tremendous. The New York Times has a nice piece about JR and the Prize online today.

We’ve previously written about his work and context in an old post “Bringing photos back to the street”
